New Ovation Press editor Hans Erik Deckert has just published two exciting Canzoni for celli. Like many of our editors, Mr. Deckert has an affinity and a knack for chamber music – especially when it comes to all-cello groups – transforming a 22-voice Gabrieli Canzone into an arrangement for 22 Celli! In addition, Hans Erik Deckert is a composer in his own right, bringing his Canzona for 12 Celli to Ovation Press
Amy Barlowe, the dynamic composer who brought us the internationally-acclaimed 12 Etude-Caprices in the Styles of Great Composers has released two suites for string orchestra. The first – Celebration Suite – is for string orchestra, percussion and sopranos while the second – Suite Celtica – is for string orchestra. These are significant additions to our catalog of music from a composer who has received rave reviews from musicians globally.
Ovation Press is excited to be making several additions to its growing catalog of arrangements for cello ensemble. We have announced the publication of a new set of cello ensemble scores by editor Stephen Watkins. This post takes a look at Mr. Watkins' Romantic and Modern era scores.
